|Civil society is one of the "hottest" concepts in all of the social sciences that touch on political life. Because so many       |

|                                                                                                                                 |
|As with most popular academic concepts, there is no universally accepted definition of either civil society or the related       |
|notions of a civic culture and social capital. In one of the best brief attempts to sort through all the definitions, the       |
